Default [Q] Windows RT UX Patcher?

Hey guys.
Ive been in the forum for a while but finally registered to ask a quick question.
Ive been searching for a while and haven't found anything regarding a Windows RT UX theme patcher. Yes I have searched everywhere but still can't find it.
My question is, does it exist? If not would it be difficult to patch them manually?
I love my Surface RT, but the non-customization of the thing is killing me. Is it also possible to change the icons on Windows in RT? Sort of like a skin-pack thing.
Anyones help would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks!

You can always replace icons in registry. HKCR is here from Win95 if not longer. They may exists .net 4.x based app to do that - this should run on jailbroken RT.
Uxtheme? I don't think so it exists. Even if it's possible, then only on jailbroken device.

Yeah my Surface is already jailbroken. Do you know if it's a easy job to do it manually? (Patch UX)
The stock Windows themes are literally death for me.
How do you usually find out if an app is .net 4.X based? I know theres a list here on the forums, but do you have to download and try every app you want?

Off-topic, but how are you typing then? Shouldn't you be cremated or something by now?

Hyperbole weakens your argument, and misuse of the language will just annoy people.

Do not private message me with questions that should have been posted on the forum! Not only are you wasting your time - I'm not going to bother writing an answer to such a question for only one person - but I will probably block you from PMing me in the future as well.
